A University official announced this week that the Foggy Bottom, Mount Vernon and Virginia campuses will all be completely wireless by November. We applaud the University for following through on its plans and for nearly completing this multi-year effort.
The transition to wireless is somewhat behind schedule – it was projected to be finished by the end of this past summer. Already most of Foggy Bottom is wireless, and the only remaining non-wireless areas are at classrooms at 2020 K St.
GW students are very dependent on wireless Internet access, so the transition to a completely wireless campus is favorable. Similarly, it is a practical next step for the University to continue to address areas of weak wireless access or dead spots currently plaguing students.
Even if it was a little behind schedule, it is nice to see this student need finally fulfilled.
